A​nyone concerned about whether Grado’s acknowledged mastery of over-ear headphones could translate to a pair of true wireless in-ears, relax. Something so small never sounded so mighty.

‘Design’ is not really something that happens to Grado headphones. Consequently, these earbuds are small by prevailing standards, light (at just 5g each) and are slightly trickier to get securely in position than they really should be. They’re supplied with a selection of tips of varying sizes, but Grado’s insistence that the ‘twist and lock’ fitting action delivers the perfect fit in an instant is slightly wide of the mark. Persist, though, and a snug, secure fit that provides a degree of passive noise cancellation can be achieved.

There’s quite a large capacitive touch-surface on each earbud – it’s almost the exact size and shape of the bold ‘G’ logo that illuminates in different colours depending on what the GT220 are doing. Touch control is comprehensive, covering volume up/ down, skip forwards/backwards, play/pause, answer/reject/end call and summon voice assistant. Siri and Google Assistant are both available, and a mic in each earbud ensures crisp call quality and unequivocal voice-assistant interaction.
